Look, never is a long time. Who knows what will be possible in 500 years? But I think it’s unlikely that we will ever be able to claim that every cancer — covering a truly massive number of individual disorders — can be cured.
I do hope to be proven wrong, but I think this is one area where there is some very justifiable…
That is absolutely an issue and why I tried to be clear that “wellness” is something of an amorphous concept. It’s primarily used as a term to encompass a range of alternative/fringe therapies, but there are undoubtedly some people who are offering reasonable treatments under the banner too. I haven’t found any yet, but they are probably there somewhere!

Every child in the history of the world has been exposed to electromagnetic radiation. As I mentioned, it includes ~visible light~. Unless you keep your child in an entirely dark cave for their entire life, they’ll get a whole bunch of EMF.
That being said, obviously there are types of harmful electromagnetic waves. Gamma…
